Artist Statement

I work primarily with the figure in paint, pastel, clay and graphite. Trained in the classical tradition I work from life using models for my figurative works. I also paint landscape and still life. I am presently working on a project Figure in Motion with a fiscal sponsorship from the New York Foundation of the Arts (NYFA). The scroll drawings are studies of choreographed sequential movements. The panel paintings explore ways to capture figurative transitional shapes with context references to nature and architecture. Choreographer Laurie de Vito’s company of dancers will perform as living sculpture with these works.
